Physiatry, neurology and spine appointments usually require a referral from your primary care physician. For general orthopaedic concerns, you’ll first be seen by a sports medicine physician who will assess your injury and order X-rays and an MRI if needed. You may be given a prescription for pain medication or directed to rest the injury and to apply ice to the area. The physician also may refer you to physical therapy, a physiatrist (who can administer injections for pain) or a surgeon.

The good news is that many injuries can be treated without surgery. At Adena Health System, the orthopaedic team follows a conservative approach to care — beginning with nonsurgical treatments such as physical therapy, steroid injections and medication in the hopes that surgery isn’t necessary.

Your First Appointment

Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment so you have time to register and read through all the necessary paperwork. To make things go as smoothly as possible, have your photo ID and insurance card ready. We will also collect your co-pay at the time of the visit.

Billing and Insurance

Adena Orthopedic and Spine Institute accepts most insurance plans, including Medicare, Medicaid and Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. Please bring your insurance cards when you come for your appointment.

If your insurance requires a referral or pre-authorization prior to a specialist visit, please make arrangements before your visit. Often times, those insurance plans will not pay any of the cost of treatment if you do not have a referral or pre-authorization. If your services are to be billed to the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, you must provide us with the appropriate active claim number, allowed conditions, date of injury and mailing address of the processing office.

We also accept most major credit cards. Please ask for details.
